Participants transferred an image to a linoleum block, carved the design into that block, rolled ink and pressed the image by hand.

Visitors discovered linocut printmaking in two hours! Participants were encouraged to come with their own 10x10cm drawing or photo, or make one up on the spot. Participants learnt carving and printing techniques and pressed multiple prints by hand. Participants left with a carved block, handmade prints, and a new creative hobby.

This workshop was recommended for ages 15+

Fees: 60 AED
